I received samples from the company for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
I have to admit that when I first looked at Miche I didn’t understand it but as I looked through the site and read about the concept the lightbulb went off and I realized how clever the One Bag Endless Possibilities world truly was. To save you my confusion it’s this simple:
You pick a a base bag.
You choose shells to match your wardrobe needs.
You find jewelry to match your bag.
Simple and brilliant.
To fully test the system I decided to choose the Petite Base Bag. This worked very well for me as I don’t have an evening bag. The base bag is black with a detachable strap so you could carry it like a clutch if you wanted. It retails for $21.95. I don’t think it could stand on its own without a shell – it just looks unfinished.
It is a nice size for an evening bag; there is enough room for a wallet, lipstick, your phone and a pack of tissues. I don’t know about you but I don’t want to be carrying a huge bag when I go out at night. There is a small pouch on the inside where you could put your keys – if your keychain wasn’t too large. It has a zipper to keep it safely closed.
I was able to choose two different shells so I went with the different types offered; one attaches with magnets and the second is rather like a little bag that you put over the base bag.
The brown faux leather cover is no longer available but similar styles are and they retail for $14.95. As you can see it gives the bag a casual look that would work for less dressy nights out or if you didn’t want to carry a big bag during the day. I admit to some concern about the shell pulling loose but I took the bag out and I had no issues.
I loved the color of the second shell; it’s a bold blood orange faux leather that suits my wardrobe perfectly. With all of the bright colors I wear it fits right in. I also like the softer look that this cover gives to the bag. It retails for $18.95.
I wore the bag out yesterday when we went on errands. You can see its size a little better this way. I like the length of the shoulder strap and for a quick trip the size was just right.
Miche adds new shells with each season so you can see that the possibilities are endless. Once you invest in the base bag you then have the option to update with various shells as you choose. Miche also offers you the opportunity to start your own business selling Miche products on your own schedule from your home.
The base bags come in four different sizes to meet your needs and the shells are available in a wide range of colors and designs. There is also an Uptowner collection for a truly upscale look for your base bag. There are interchangeable handles so you will never be bored with your bag again!
